A couple of weeks back we were invited up to London to visit the 'George Home' house set up by George at Asda. We often find ourselves in our local store because its quite close to our home and is a nice way to kill a morning with a coffee and a browse around the new home bits. They have a really handy section of kids crafting items which we'll pick up for an afternoon activity and I often end up leaving with a candle or new baking item.
Myself and four other other blogger families (Katie, Laura, Jess and Caro) were invited to view the home and it was great way to catch up with some of my favourites and see all the blogging husbands too! The kids immediately got stuck into playing with the toys and making friends and I was secretly quite pleased that Wilf was drawn to the dolls house and play kitchen. Tom read him a book the other day where the mummy bear in the story was cooking the dinner and he burst out laughing saying 'mummy's don't make the dinner! That's daddy's job!' so you can see the stereotypical general roles are pretty reversed in our household.
The team had done such a fantastic job with the place, moving all the owner of the house's furniture out to replace literally everything with George at Asda pieces, including planting the walls with Asda paint! I think you got a real feel for the pieces seeing them in situ rather than a shop floor and I found items in every room that I mentally put on my wish list.
I was really impressed with the range and have picked out some of my personal favourites to share with you guys. I loved some of them so much I've actually since ordered them for our home.
The team were brilliant with the kids setting out activities such as biscuit decorating and crafting, or simply letting them enjoy the house and the toys (which they definitely did!). Wilf made firm friends with Laura from Side Street Style's little boy even though it had been a year since they'd last seen each other & we found them later building a den with the blankets in the hallway! They certainly made themselves at home.
My absolute favourite of the room was the adults bed room and more specifically the bedding. It was the perfect shade and pattern and a whole bedding set came to £12 in total! I'm also really taken by the copper and rose gold details in the plant pots, candles and curtains.
After a long but fun day it was time to go home!
Thanks to George at Asda for a lovely day, you can see this post I did with them last year at eight months pregnant!
